The mission of the Practical Philosophy Group (Praxis) is to carry out high quality research on philosophical issues with deep practical significance, focusing on areas such as Ethics, Political Philosophy, Environmental Philosophy, Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art, Philosophy of Religion and Philosophy of Law.


The Praxis Group includes experienced as well as young researchers, who use diverse tools of philosophical investigation, such as comparative analysis, phenomenology, and conceptual description. This use of a broad range of philosophical approaches is crucial to promote a better understanding of the close link between practical and theoretical philosophical problems and topics, and to create bridges between the study of the history of philosophy, and the reflection on contemporary issues of a philosophical nature.
